Well, I'm not that proud of that table: Interestingly seven out of the
top ten FIXMEs in a single file have been seen *only* in that one file.
While proper fixes that remove the FIXMEs are always good I'm not so
sure about just silencing those. Probably a better table would be

The Noisiest FIXMEs that show up at least in 1% of the collected reports:

Hard. You'll need to generate a regexp from the the message text and git
grep with that. Of course a previous git grep on the debug channel will
help to reduce the search space.

No, you don't. You know who last edited the respective line.
But even if you get the guy who added the FIXME/ERR you'd end up blaming
the wrong person. It isn't like people would add those FIXME/ERR in the
inner loops of a function. Most likely it is an other part that triggers
the FIXME/ERR; it might even be application code that does "stupid"

And winefixme is not about blame but about helping to figure out what
FIXME/ERR messages are common and thus worth fixing or at least to tame
a little the noisiest ones (we really could make good use of
